Prospective History of Long-Term Mortality and Modes of Death in Patients Discharged After Acute Coronary Syndrome: The ABC-2* Study on Acute Coronary Syndrome

Prospective History of Long-Term Mortality and Modes of Death in Patients Discharged After Acute Coronary Syndrome: The ABC-2* Study on Acute Coronary Syndrome

Background: The aim of this study was to examine the prognostic value of several clinical characteristics on long-term mortality and causes of death after acute coronary syndrome. Methods: The ABC-2 study is a prospective investigation comprising 557 patients with acute coronary syndrome. During hospitalization, 33 clinical variables, including demographics, cardiovascular risk factors, in-hospital characteristics, and blood components, were examined. “Acute models” were survival models containing the variables accrued within 72 h from admission, and “sub-acute models” contained data accrued over a 7-day period. Cox regression models were used for the survival analysis.
